obama would like us to ignore what is happening is past four years. granted, he came into a tough situation, but we have to consider that during the last 43 months we have had more than 8% unemployment. it is the only time in this nation's history that we have had a president that has presided even over three years of over 8% unemployment. the fact is, those 43 months of over 8% unemployment during president obama's term is four months more than all of the months of over 8% unemployment from 1948 until president obama's inauguration. he talks about recovery, all the new jobs. the fact is, in the downturn, 60% of the jobs lost were mid skill and mid paying jobs, and only 20% of the new jobs during the so-called recovery are in that category. most of the jobs are low-paying jobs, these new jobs he brags about are in retail sales and food preparation. there are things that have been proven in our history to work. we could have put in place, and it needs to be put in immediately, it works progress administration kind of program where we are investing in the future by building up our n
